Born and raised in a sailing family in Bermuda, Rob learned to sail at the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club and Spanish Point Boat Club, finishing 3rd in the Bermuda Junior Nationals in 1989.

A former dinghy instructor at Southampton Water Activities Centre, Rob switched to marine publishing in 2004, becoming sub-editor at PBO, rising through the ranks to take over the news and feature editing role from 2007-2010. He is a regular evening and weekend yacht racer in the Solent as well as a keen windsurfer with plans to buy a small yacht for some South Coast exploring with his family.
